NEW BRAND: THE ELLERY COLLECTION FOR CRUISE 2016
A RUFFLE IN TIME
What would fashion be without a touch of drama? For Sydney-based designer Kym Ellery that means ruffles, draping and sculptured volumes, elements with which she has created a strong and successful signature aesthetic. From a crisp white blouse to off-the-shoulder gowns to tailored jackets, Ellery’s sculptural flourishes are at once bold and beautiful. For Cruise 2016, the designer was inspired by Anita Pallenberg, the actress and model from the Sixties and Seventies, who dated Keith Richards. A muse for many, Pallenberg’s look was and is still is considered effortlessly and intriguingly cool.
For her Resort collection, Ellery reworked that rock-chick vibe, plus Pallenberg’s lesser-known fascination with the occult, via a host of feminine pieces such as cropped bell-shaped trousers, ruffled-sleeved jackets and fluid dresses in a sleek palette of white and black with flashes of color.
